Benefits of Cherries Part 2

Fresh cherries are a favorite summertime treat, whether you love them in a fresh-baked cherry pie or as an energizing snack. Cherries are also incredibly good for you—and they boast a wide range of benefits far beyond just being delicious. Power-packed cherries are full of antioxidants, fiber, calcium, and vitamin C to help protect against chronic diseases, boost your recovery after exercise, and so much more. 

Below, find out exactly why this ruby red fruit is worth adding to your diet.

  • Reduce Inflammation – In one study, women consumed two servings of sweet cherries after an overnight fast. The blood and urine samples that were taken before and after the cherry dose indicate that cherries decreased inflammation, inhibited inflammatory pathways and lowered plasma urate, which is the salt driven from uric acid.
  • High in Potassium – A cup of cherries fulfils 9 percent of your recommended daily value of potassium. Potassium reduces the risk of stroke, alleviates hypertension and high blood pressure, reduces muscle cramping, and improves muscle strength.
  • Treat Osteoarthritis – A study done at the Osteoarthritis Research Centre evaluated 58 non-diabetic patients with osteoarthritis who drank two eight-ounce bottles of tart cherry juice daily for six weeks. As a result of the study, WOMAC scores decreased significantly after the tart cherry juice treatment. High sensitivity scores also declines after the cherry treatment, suggesting that the tart cherry juice provided symptom relief for patients with osteoarthritis.
  • Help Sleep Cycle – Tart cherry juice contains high levels of phytochemical, including melatonin, a molecule critical in regulating our sleep wake cycle. Melatonin is a hormone made by the pineal gland, a small gland in the brain; it helps control sleep and wake cycles.

  2. At the moment, don’t like cherries, but I do like cranberries. What is funny about this is that I love Shirley Temples- the only kind of soft drinks I like

      1. I do need a little more iron- which is odd because my family eats things with iron in it

      Sweet cherries are high in melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone. Consuming a glass of cherry juice before you’re off to bed can reduce the severity of insomnia and increase overall sleep efficiency.

    Hi Garima,

    Sweet! And tart. Good information. I am thinking a cherry Jalepeno kombucha might have good health benefits together.

    Thank you,

        It’s called, “Ocean of Emotions” Kombucha. It’s something my daughter’s boyfriend got me started during COVID. It’s been great helping people I know getting a little bit healthier.
